Sun-aphobes who go to the beach armed with hats, umbrellas, and tents, might consider investing in a rash guard this summer: Long worn by surfers, they’re good for regular non-surfers, too, and this one, from Land’s End (and on sale as part of a big Lands’ End deal of the day at Amazon), fits more like a T-shirt than your classic Roxy or Billabong offering. It’s UPF 50 (meaning you don’t have to worry about slathering your back and arms in sunscreen every two seconds), and is ideal for long days at the beach, a jaunt on a boat, or any situation where you’ll be roasting in the sun for extended periods. The stripes are nice, and it’s available in regular and plus sizes.
Update: These puppies were so popular they sold out, but this tropical-print version, which on the right person we think is fun and retro in an early-aughts O’Neill kind of way, is still available for half off.
